Rainforest birdwatching

The birdwatching is an activity that has been practiced since the late-18th century; Gilbert White, Thomas Bewick, George Montagu and John Clare were one of the first persons who registered their work in the birdwatching field. The birdwatching is also called birding, is the study of birds, you can listen to their calls, watch their behavior in freedom, witness their rituals and more. The Amazon rainforest, is a perfect place to practice birdwatching, the lower Río Javarí is home to more than 500 species of birds, creating an unusual mix of avian elements from western and southern Amazonia, with even a few species present that are generally found only north of the Amazon River.


Several species of birds are difficult or even impossible to see elsewhere in Brazil or Peru, making the area attractive also for serious country liters. The Río Javarí has been relatively little visited by ornithologists, and only in recent years has the terra firme become better known, resulting in the discovery of at least two new species of birds for science. Pending the official publishing of these two species, which will likely be within the next two years.
